Police were responding to a report that a Los Angeles Unified School District police officer was wounded at a shooting near El Camino Real High School in Woodland Hills.

The shooting occurred around 11:45 a.m. on the campus at Valley Circle and Burbank boulevards.

Live video footage from KTLA News showed dozens of police officers searching the area around the school and an ambulance apparently carrying the officer leaving the scene.

Your right, I live in LA, right smack in the middle of liberalism..its only gotten worse here..not like it would have gotten much better if Meg Whitman had won..to me, Jerry Brown is no different then Schwartzenegger, just has a D next to his name, other then that, same crap, different name. Watching the coverage right now on ABC 7, prayers to the officer who was shot today

Should we consider Ohio to be a liberal infested disaster...which is heading our way if we don’t stop this Godless, socialist disease from Ohio?

Brown is a lot worse than Schwarzenegger. Arnold TRIED to get the morons in this state to vote for a package of propositions that would have been helpful to the financial situation in this state because he couldn’t get one iota of cooperation from the legislature......a bunch of hard leftists elected by the same idiots who elected Gray Davis and wouldn’t agree to the propositions and also elected Jerry Brown as AG and then governor.

OK... Looks like they don't have the suspect in custody.

On another note, we got a nice look at the caliber (pardon the pun) of LAUSD administrators on KTLA's coverage. The news people were interviewing a spokesman who stated that the students were told that there was an incident on the "parameter" of the school.

Um... The correct word is "perimeter".

My tax dollars at work.

The kids in these urban and now, in many places, suburban jungles can’t get an education with or without the shootings because they’re just junior versions of the same savage beasts doing the shootings and they don’t want an education. Going to school is treated like an evening at a nightclub. It’s a place to make asses of themselves, find sex partners, start fights and act tough. All they do in class is cause trouble and make life a living hell for the teachers. There’s no learning going on because that’s the way the kids want it. The teachers may as well be trying to control a cage full of chimpanzees at the zoo. In some cases, the teachers aren’t much better or they’re living in fear of these savage beasts and their families. This is what forty years of leftist control of one our most precious and important institutions has wrought.

Mayhem and chaos.

Police are even covering portions of the LA River just in case the perp tries to “float” away.

LAPD has also taken a suspect to the hospital to see if the injured officer can ID him as the shooter...

EVERETT, WA) -- 1/19/2011. A shooting in Everett resulted in 5 schools being locked down for a short time during the noon hour Wednesday while police searched for suspects.

Uh oh.....The liberal infested disaster and Godless, socialist disease has reached Everett Washington!

It's spreading fast!

PEOPLE who are assuming this happened in a gang or urban area, this is one of the absolute top academic high schools in L.A. They win the National Academic Decathalon (or whatever it’s called) very often.

This neighborhood is full of $1,000,000+ homes and it a VERY nice area, very suburban. Anyone would feel very safe there. There are no gangs there.

Just to let you know how kind of shocking this shooting is.

It’s a tricky job for police to allow the students to be released from the school while the gunman is still on the loose.

Many residents still cannot get in to their homes...

RE: “Hmm...sure seems like a nice area.

****************

It is a nice enough area but there is crime everywhere around L.A.

The shooter in this case was trying to break into cars near the high school and was approached by the officer — shooter is still, as of now, on the loose. Hundreds of officers were deployed to the area and numerous nearby schools are still on lockdown while they hunt for the shooter and go door to door in neighborhoods.

The shooter is thought to be a white guy with long hair.

Traffic in the area is a mess. Multiple off-ramps on the 101 are blocked as are numerous surface streets. I had to use every short cut I know to get through just now! And to top it off, the shooter’s probably three states away by now.

The area around El Camino HS is indeed very nice, unlike the area around Gardena HS.

School data for 2008/2009 year
Population:
Whites 52.1%
Asians 9.7%
Hispanic 24.7%
Black 7.3%

(Keep in mind that many Hispanic and black students are bussed to the school from other areas.)

School’s 2009 Academic Performance Index: 773 (out of 1000)

http://www.ed-data.k12.ca.us/profile.asp?Tab=0&level=07&reportnumber=16&county=19&district=64733&school=1932623

About the shooting...Bad guys sometimes do come into nice areas to commit crime...

There is a cop on most LAUSD high schools and middle schools. LA Unified does have its own PD...Its HQ is near 110 freeway.
